We have family in America who, when they come to London, make certain that a table at Frederick's is booked! The service, food, and atmosphere never disappoint, and there's a good variety on the menu to suit all diets. The wine list is well priced and the sommelier always helpful, keeping in mind the price point. Even on a crowded Saturday evening we had attentive staff who kept the water flowing and the table tidy for all three courses. It's Islington, so of course the prices may seem a bit steep to some, but the cost is well worth the experience. And the little chocolate truffle with the bill? Delish.

Really lovely birthday treat for a friend in a relaxed and friendly restaurant. Lunch fixed menu is very good value for money at £17 for two courses and we paid £20 for a bottle of house white which was surprisingly good and went well with our whole sea bass main course. I’ve been here a few times before but in the evening and it’s busier and louder. Even though it was pretty full it was pretty chilled I think I prefer the lunchtime for a leisurely meal in a calmer atmosphere. We will be back!

Very good service, efficient and very pleasant. They were able to provide gluten free bread for one of my guests, and give information about ingredients, but it did of course make her choices more limited. The food is good, but I think not quite as good as it has been, but thoroughly enjoyable. The only thing that diminished our enjoyment was that it was very noisy. Overall, Fredericks is a restaurant I like a lot, and am always confident in taking people to, reliably good

A lovely space, but a little let down by service. No-one refilled our water glasses the whole time we were there, and no water bottle left on our table. Food was quite nice, although the fruit salad was very basic and tasteless. Main courses were very nice, though.

We had a lovely meal with a young friend from home who is currently living in London. It was the perfect place - great food, no rush, so comfortable. I have eaten at Frederick’s several times and it is always wonderful.

Frederick’s offers top quality food, ambience and service at a great price. The Prix Fixe option (£17 for two courses, £21 for three) must be one of the best bargains in London.

We just love this place — it’s refined but not snobby, popular but not overly crowded, and the food is a perfect mix of fresh and light matched with heavier dishes. We especially love the sommelier, Erwin. His recommendation are spot-on! For dates or for inviting friends, we always have a great time.

After the surly service at Nopi the night before Fredericks was a haven of class and friendliness. Delicious food served with a smile. Personable sommelier who has a great sense of humour. Thoroughly enjoyable.

The sommelier was great and found us a v nice wine to go with our food, although we wanted something at the cheap end... he also topped us up regularly throughout the meal and was altogether great...
I love the spaciousness, artworks and trees, and the service was v good.
Was a little surprised to find two bones in a fish cake, though it was otherwise nice. Good chips, gazpacho and macchiato.

On a sunny weekday in The City, there are few treats more enjoyable than a long-ish lunch at Frederick's. The set menu is marvellous value, but did not choose it, this time. The sommelier, Erdwin (apologies for the spelling, I think) was informative and fun, bringing great value white and red wines. David
